You can't ever have too much black, I can now say the same is true for white; to think at some point in my life I only wore black seems senseless now. This week's outfit is taking my obsession with monochromatic simplicity to the next level, and never have I been so excited about white. I am also totally loving the come back that sneakers and slip-ons have been making. I am sure you all know by now, but I will always choose sneakers and flats over heels (blasphemy?!). As for my Celine Trio bag, I am still as happy with it now as I was when I first purchased it. If you are not sure whether: "to buy or not to buy" let me tell you, save up the money and get it. It is worth it!

WEARING: Thrift Turtleneck, DIY American Apparel Zipper Pants, H&M Leather Jacket & Heels, Alexander Wang Marion Bag and Zara Cuffs.
Take one old, very oversized pair of pants + a pair of scissors and the willingness to cut them up; you may end up with the perfect ingredients to make something new and cool. I love the result of this DIY. I wore this outfit to my friend's birthday, and some guy walked up to me at the end of the night with a very serious face and said: "You need to buy a new pair of jeans". Oh the things men will never understand.
As you may have noticed, I have been missing in action this month, it has been busy for me and I will continue on this pace until the end of August. Creating a new brand and collection is no small feat. Meryl Fernandes, my partner in crime and I are working hard on our collaboration: Two M Projects. We are creating the patterns at the moment, and there is still a lot more work to be done. It is so rewarding to see things come to life! Please forgive my absence, I will try my best with my posts here, for more weekly updates though follow my Instagram.

I am breaking my two week hiatus. At first I was busy getting things done in the studio to ensure that I could go on a mini holiday to LA, and I did get things done on time to be able to travel. What a trip it was! Sunshine, good girlfriends, and I felt extremely grateful to be in LA once again. I love it there, it feels like a second home to me for sure. This time around, I spent a lot of time in Santa Monica, visiting places like Manhattan and Hermosa beaches, did a lot of shopping, dining and drinking.
There wasn't much rest on this trip; we hit the clubs, we danced all night and were between the pool and the beach during the day. I did not take any pictures for the blog while I was there, I really wanted to feel like I was on vacation, so I took a break from everything social media related. These shots were taken before I left to LA. It is still cold here, raining from time to time, so the layering trend continues. Long Vests over sweaters is where it's at ;) Thanks for being patient, I am back and I hope with more creativity and energy than before. Five days away can really help freshen up and inspire the mind. Back to hustling now.
